Farmland vs. Fantasyland, 1955

Orange trees and a row of fully-grown eucalyptus trees on the outskirts of Disneyland during the autumn of the park's opening year.

Today, the orange grove is gone, but amazingly those eucalyptus trees have survived.  You can see them today as you face the Storybook Land attraction.  The trees were planted over a hundred years ago by Anaheim farmers as a windbreak to their property line.
